Vagrant Story was one of the surprise titles of Square back in the PS1 days. It was something that was very different from what they were doing back then. I was a big fan of Square back then. I loved all their turn-based RPGs and the stories that they told. That's why I immediately grabbed Vagrant Story when it went out. But wow, was I shocked and surprised. The art style was very far from the usual Square offerings. The dialogue was shakespeare-like. And the story was very dark and different... And the gameplay? It was something that I thought Square would never ever even conceptualize. It was a cross between a turn-based RPG and an action RPG. Did I like it? Well, at first, I hated it. I didn't like the story and the way the characters delivered their lines. So I stopped playing it after a few hours. When I had nothing else to play about after a month, I tried to play Vagrant Story again. Lo and behold... I was completely in awe. I began to appreciate the art-style, the dark story. And I also realized that the combat system was absolutely awesome! There also a complex item and weapon forging system that had me addicted in collecting stuff. Vagrant Story became one of my favorite Square titles of all time. Were you able to play Vagrant Story? Did you like it too?
